Socialists planning mass demonstrations, except they are missing one thing.

You've heard of the Arab Spring, and now America is about to get its own version. Known as "Democracy Spring" the movement is being sponsored by socialists with the aim of widespread civil disobedience. The organization is presently known for shutting down Trump rallies.

An Occupy protester is arrested during the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York. The long-running demonstrations ended as the weather turned cold.

LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) - A stealthy, and very dangerous new movement is about to explode across America and few people know it's coming. A movement known as "Democracy Spring" is about to kick off a series of massive protests along the U.S. East Coast with the intention of spreading mass civil disobedience.

Democracy Spring is promising "drama in Washington" and "the largest civil disobedience action of the century." The group's website proclaims, "We will demand that Congress listen to the People and take immediate action to save our democracy. And we won't leave until they do - or until they send thousands of us to jail."

The movement is a a product of the extreme-left, supported by George Soros' MoveOn.org, the Democratic Socialists of America, the AFL-CIO and likely many soon-to-be former Bernie Sanders supporters.

The organization has already staged protests that have shut down Trump rallies. Next, they plan to shut down major cities on the East coast, including Philadelphia and Washington D.C.

According to the group's website, violence is strictly forbidden, but civil disobedience is planned, so arrests are certain. The question then becomes if the protests will be counter-protested and if violence will erupt.

Participants are not to wear masks, carry shields, and are to be respectful at all times. However, such movements also attract hooligans, so the risk of trouble is present.

Several social movements, such as Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street and other, smaller but liberal movements may come together under the Democracy Spring banner. What effect the dynamics of all these groups together in one place will have is unknown.

The first demonstrations will begin on April 2, and will continue through April 18. The events are not expected to continue through the work week, but there's no reason for many participants to quit because of that.

Democracy Spring has also promised the aid of a team of pro-bono lawyers who are led by an expert attorney in civil disobedience cases.

If there's any consolation, it is that the Democracy Spring movement has not attracted many followers. At present, it has just 1,706 Twitter followers, 4,836 likes on Facebook, and less than a hundred people have pledged to participate in sit ins.

In other words, Democracy Spring may fall, because nobody is interested in participating in socialism.
